Why ServiceStack?

Simple, versatile, evolvable, resilient high-performance message-based APIs

Maximize Value and Reach of System APIs
Most features are centered around ServiceStack APIs which has become the most versatile in the world where the same APIs can be consumed from HTTP in a myriad of data formats, via popular MQ Servers whilst supporting new technologies like gRPC without sacrificing any native HTTP integrations.
Ultimate Developer Productivity
ServiceStack makes it as simple as possible for API Consumers to call your APIs, with native end-to-end typed integrations to 10 of the most popular languages used in creating Web, Mobile & Desktop Apps, that they can easily add/update from within their favorite IDE.
Remote Services Best Practices
ServiceStack adopts a message-based design that embraces the SOA Integration Remote Facade, DTO and Service Gateway patterns whose uniquely benefits ServiceStack as the only Services framework to reuse API contracts enabling optimal end-to-end typed API integrations in .NET Apps without code-gen.
Benefits of message-based design
Unlike RPC, messages can be evolved, intercepted, routed & serialized with natural decoupling of an APIs coarse-grained DTO contracts allowing front & back-end developers to collaborate on an agreed high-level API design free of detail concerns for their independent implementations.
Consistent & Simplified Development Model
The benefit afforded by capturing an entire API boundary into impl-free Service Contracts extends to all natively supported languages who only need be concerned with generating declarative DTOs resulting in types encapsulating richer metadata beyond what's possible in other code-gen solutions.
Preserve Investments
ServiceStack has been consistently promoting the same remote service best-practices for over a decade, whose adoption of its time-tested patterns has survived beyond several abandoned .NET Web Service frameworks during its lifetime with any investments having failed along with them.

ServiceStack APIs

Effortlessly create feature-rich APIs and Web Apps with ServiceStack


Intro to ServiceStack

In this introduction to ServiceStack, we will guide you through the framework's message-based design and its numerous benefits, which include promoting simplicity and enabling maximum reuse.

By utilizing a message-based design, ServiceStack encourages developers to focus on the core functionality of their services while abstracting away complexities, resulting in a more streamlined and efficient development process.
